Christmas was one of my favorite holidays as a child.
We had a big Christmas tree in our living room, and I really enjoyed decorating it, as well as waking up to the presents underneath it on Christmas Day.
Fast forward several years, and now we get to do the same for our son. As he’s less than 9 months old, our Christmas tree is much smaller. And since he can’t decorate it or pick up the presents from underneath the tree, we did the former and handed the latter to him.
History rhymes, and that’s sometimes a beautiful thing.
Happy Christmas everyone.
